Saal-Digital – Alu-Dibond wall decor review

I was fortunate to be invited to trial a wall decor product by Saal-Digital

After viewing their impressive range of wall decor products I opted to go for an Alu-Dibond print. 

From their site:

Multi talented Alu-Dibond: rigid, weather resistant and high resolution

The print has an impressive saturation and colourfulness with high resolution and sharpness. It is realized through the newest direct UV printing with 6 colours instead of 4, including light inks, and sixfold UV cure. Even large and monochromatic areas are resplendent in saturated colours and absolute subtlety and fineness.

  • Aluminium composite panel 3 mm (matte)
  • custom size available
  • six-colour UV direct printing, incl. light inks
  • stable, rigid and weather resistant
  • according to format type, aluminium subframe, standard mounting or standoffs available
  • For pros: ICC profile available 

Their software was really easy to use meaning it was a simple and straightforward process to get my design set up. 

The ordering process was extremely easy and the print was delivered within 4 working days of ordering. It was very well packaged. The print comes with stick on mounts for hanging.

I chose a 30 x 45 print of this photo of beach huts I took at Paignton:

Paignton Beach Huts

and here is the finished product on display in my living room:

As you can see the print quality is exceptional and the product feels tough and durable. This would well in an office or on a display as it will endure being knocked, touched and brushed against. The design and colours came out brilliantly.I am extremely happy with the finished product.
